Mamma Mia: Swedish bosses busted

Today’s FT unveils the latest corporate bribery scandal to rock Scandinavia:

‘The chief executive of TeliaSonera, the Swedish telecoms company, is to be charged with bribery after inviting clients to see the musical Mamma Mia, which features the music of Abba, the 1970s Swedish pop group.

‘Anders Igel will be charged alongside Marie Ehrling, the head of the company's operations in Sweden, after prosecutors decided that listening to Abba songs would have constituted "an unwarrantable reward for the recipients in the official discharge of their duties".’

Bribery? Sounds more like a deliberate attempt to lose the account if you ask me.
